So I decided to build a MAME arcade cabinet. Hopefully it will come out somewhat looking like I intend it to. I basic design is based on TalkingOctopus's plan, which is actually based on LuSiD's Arcade cabinet. I wanted the four player setup, minus the trackball and then hopefully giving everyone a little more elbow room and palm space below the controllers.
Home Depot's finest selection of 3/4" plywood (x3 4'x8' sheets)
